Susp Inact following wheel bearing fix

Mon Jan 28, 2019 4:59 pm

Hi all,

Had a rear wheel bearing replaced last week, and now have the 'self level suspension.inact' error. I've had a bit of a google but would welcome your advice.

The car is at normal ride height, not dropped at all, and there's no hissing. The airbags appear to be fine.

I've checked the fuses in the rear and all appear to be fine.

I've driven about a hundred miles since the wheel bearing was replaced, and it's sat over the weekend, and it hasn't cleared.

I don't have tire pressure sensors. I only have bags on the rear, its a 2003 30d manual.

Any advice would be welcome!

thanks!

Ben

Check that when they dropped it down after work was finished that the sensor didn’t flip over in the wrong direction. Compare with the other Side

Can be due to the compressor not being able to get to the right pressure too as the piston ring is worn , I had this for about a month on my e70 before the compressor gave up ,came on after about 2 mins on a drive , airbags at right height and not dropping overnight too. If the compressor sounds louder than usual then that would be a sign its on the way out.Once they start blowing the 30/40amp fuse you need a new compressor .

+1 on the sensor flip.
